Sony announces new F23 CineAlta camera

Sony has introduced the F23 camera, which will support 4:4:4 1920 x 1080 RGB imaging.

The system will join the HDC-F950 camera at the high end of the company’s CineAlta line. The F23 uses three 2.2Mb 2/3in progressive CCDs and a 14-bit A/D converter. The system will support 1080/23.98P, 24P, 25P, 29.97P, 50P, 59.94P, 50i and 59.94i formats.

The SRW-1 digital 4:4:4 recorder will dock directly to the top or to the tail of the new system, eliminating cable handling between the camera and recorder. The recorder can also be tethered using a “dual-link” cable connection.

To be film user-friendly, the camera body will be compatible with a variety of film camera accessories, including bridge plates, matte boxes and follow focus units. These can be attached to the unit without modification. The F23 system will also use a harder material for its lens mount (B4 type).

When used with Sony’s SRW-1 VTR, the new camera system can capture and record variable speed images from 1P to 60P (1P to 30fps at 4:4:4 and 1P to 60fps at 4:2:2) at the full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

The F23 system is expected to be available in late spring 2007.

Eleven FCC Scenarios for The 600 MHz Band Plan
I suspect that the estimated $44 billion of auction proceeds do not take into account the fact that some spectrum the FCC will buy cannot be resold because it must be used as guard intervals in the 600 MHz band plan.~ Charles W. Rhodes
